Defiance College Teacher Education


Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP)
 has annual reporting measures which are used to provide information to the public on both program outcome and impact. Following is the list of CAEP measures with links to data tables that provide supporting evidence for each measure.


1a. Completer Impact in contributing to P-12 student-learning growth
Ohio's value-added data system provides information on student academic gains. As a vital component of Ohio's accountability system, districts and educators have access to an extensive array of diagnostic data through the Education Value-Added Assessment System (EVAAS). Schools can demonstrate through value- added data that many of their students are achieving significant progress. Student growth measures also provide students and parents with evidence of the impact of their efforts. Educators and schools further use value-added data to inform instructional practices.
1b. Completer Effectiveness in applying professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions
Ohio's system for evaluating teachers (Ohio's Teacher Evaluation System, or OTES) provides educators with a detailed view of their performance, with a focus on specific strengths and opportunities for improvement. The system is research-based and designed to be transparent, fair, and adaptable to the specific contexts of Ohio's school districts. Furthermore, it builds on what educators know about the importance of ongoing assessment and feedback as a powerful vehicle to support improved practice. Teacher performance and student academic growth are the two key components of Ohio's evaluation system.
